eran: When I do combat archery in the SCA, I use a hip quiver - when running around in armor its a lot easier to draw and fire that way than a shoulder quiver. I've seen folks holding sheaves of arrows, but with combat blunts its rather difficult. Jan 28, 2015 5:11:02 GMT -9
wyvern: Also interesting the impracticality of the open quiver in active combat situations. Ancient artworks often show archers holding a bundle of arrows. Maybe minis should too? Jan 27, 2015 16:28:25 GMT -9
cowboyleland: Having been taught "the proper way" to shoot, I had always assumed that the artists in old pictures got it wrong. It sure seems like they were actually drawing what they saw. Jan 27, 2015 12:26:10 GMT -9

okumarts: The further back the illustration, the more likely it is thumb-sided. That could be because as the bow was replaced ballistically it became a target practice tool and less of a weapon. As a weapon the thumb seems more flexible in a combat situation. Jan 26, 2015 9:55:59 GMT -9
okumarts: Some sources are inconsistent. http://www.luminarium.org/encyclopedia/crecyfroissart.jpg Jan 26, 2015 9:53:40 GMT -9
okumarts: I don't really remember what side I was on in the debate, but the older images I'm finding seem to support thumb side. http://turkey.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/122.jpg Jan 26, 2015 9:49:44 GMT -9
cowboyleland: A few years ago there was a debate on this forum about what side of a bow the arrow should be on. I was on the "finger side" of the debate, but I think after seeing this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEG-ly9tQGk I'm ready to accept "thumb side" minis. Jan 26, 2015 6:13:09 GMT -9
dungeonmistress: For anyone interested in seeing the books I made for Christmas gifts, here's the link: http://dmscraft.proboards.com/thread/2427/asked-xmas-gifts Jan 9, 2015 11:29:36 GMT -9

mproteau: Done! Somehow my printer did better on the last page of bosses than on the other pages, but it all looks great! The cutfiles are posted here: http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/thread/6586/darkfast-dungeons-basic-game Dec 28, 2014 17:00:41 GMT -9
mproteau: Just two more pages of gorgeous baddies, and the cutfiles will be done for the Darkfast Dungeons Basic set! C'mon printer, don't fail me now! Bonus - I got a ton of clear acrylic bases from Litko for Christmas. The minis will look even better now! Dec 28, 2014 7:42:58 GMT -9
dungeonmistress: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all. Regardless of faith, I wish light and love and happiness to all the good folks here! Dec 27, 2014 21:30:44 GMT -9
mproteau: I replaced the print head, but at this point the printer as been through a LOT. Dec 27, 2014 20:04:26 GMT -9
mproteau: I think I need a new printer... Or a new ink system... I think perhaps I'll end up getting a new printer, and switch to cheap ink carts. Not sure why, but the pigment black seems to have problems printing in a couple areas... Dec 27, 2014 20:04:04 GMT -9
mproteau: Been away from hobbies for a while now, but I'm working on the recent Darkfast Dungeon Basic Set cutfiles now! Granted, many of the pages are simple rectangles, but I like to let the machine cut them all out perfect. :) Dec 26, 2014 18:16:00 GMT -9
